Apple "Never mind the fact that the iPod turned the entire music industry on its head. Never mind the fact that most successful notebooks today resemble designs first popularized by Apple. Never mind the fact that the blueprint of the modern day smartphone remains the original iPhone. Never mind the fact that competitors are scrambling wildly to copy the success and design of the iPad. Forget all of these things, because when it comes to Apple, the 'what have you done for me lately?' mentality reigns supreme."

Uh, no it doesn't. My Gingerbread phone still cost ~$80. Maybe it's not as "powerful" as the iPhone but that's not the point.
It's a new, cheap Gingerbread and it performs commendably well, especially considering it's price. I guess some people just have a problem accepting that expensive does not always equal better (or at least not so much better that paying 10 times as much is acceptable). Heck, it even has a feature no iPhone has: dual SIM's.
